The Gallerist is a folk and indie band based out of the North Shore of Boston. Singer, songwriter Mike Collins began the group in Boston before moving to the Philadelphia area, where the band built a strong following, releasing two albums and performing in many venues, large and small. In 2017, Collins returned to Boston and put together the band's current lineup featuring Max Monaco on drums and Jim Chekos on bass. The group's following has since grown significantly and they have been filling up venues in and around Boston. While calling it home, the Gallerist was described as Philadelphia's "best kept secret" (WXPN's the Key) and were given a featured article leading up to our most recent album's release. In the past, they have been compared to the likes of Wilco, Ryan Adams, the Lumineers, and Built to Spill. The band continues to play out as much as possible and is preparing to record and release a new set of songs in 2018.
